Our little dog Rudy, is very vocal. When he wants to play, he whines and stares at you until you throw the ball. He knows what he wants and won't stop until he gets it. When he's hungry, he will pick up his bowl and drop it so it makes a noise, just to get our attention! We always give in to him because he doesn't stop. He's a spoiled little monster, but he's the cutest thing ever! I wonder if God looks at us the same way. I can just see Him looking at us saying "aw, look how cute they are!" We wouldn't be much fun if we didn't talk to Him, even if it's just to ask for frivolous things. We may not get what we ask for, but I'll bet He's amazed at our fervency. According to scripture, He wants us to ask. If our prayer agrees with scripture we should keep asking until we get an answer. If you want more of the Holy Spirit or wisdom, ask! You will start to see a difference in your reactions and your thinking. Wisdom takes time, but He will train you until you are very wise. If you want more of the Holy Spirit, He will teach you to tune in. We have a good, good Father, so ask!
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15
